Cook. Create. Share.

Jikoni is a collaborative platform of both editorial and user-submitted content. A space to share a meal, a story, a tip. We’re here for each other, and because of each other.  With a focus on under-represented cuisines and an emphasis on Africa and the diaspora, Jikoni aims to teach culture through food in as many spaces and contexts as possible. 

We are currently accepting post submissions for our Living & Travel sections. Want to share a recipe? Check out our recipe submissions page.

While submissions are currently unpaid, please keep in mind that as we grow, our resources will become less limited! We cannot wait for the day that we are able to hire you as freelance and staff writers. Until then, we ask for your patience, and we will work hard to get you the exposure that your efforts deserve.


  • City guides (see our template)
  • Food & beverage tips
  • Illustrations
  • Photo series/essays
  • Personal essays
  • Research-based articles
  • Video pitches (to be further discussed and potentially produced)

Please note: If you’d like to contribute but can’t pinpoint an idea, hit us up; we have a ton! If you have ideas but don’t consider yourself a writer, hit us up; we have an in-house editor ready to jump in!
